CARES Newsletter, March 2019
The events shown below are social and learning experiences for those with special needs, provided by Autism Cares Foundation.

What we provide is only possible through the generous donations we receive,
and also through the kind participation and support of our biggest fundraisers.
Fun with our Sweethearts at the Valentine's Dance!
On Friday, February 8th at Council Rock High School South, nearly 200 friends came together to celebrate Valentine's Day! There was no shortage of festive outfits - some dressed up, and others matching with their best friends to hit the dance floor and hang out for a night of fun.

Volunteers helped ACF Staff work very hard to decorate, and ensure a comfortable and safe social experience for all. Snacks and special heart shaped cookies were available to fill up our special friends when they needed a break from the dance floor, but not for too long - Dolan DJs kept everyone on their feet for the entire evening!

Check out our Events Calendar for the next dance, our St. Patrick's Day Social, coming up on March 8th! We look forward to seeing you all there!
A Beautiful Community Partnership!
Thank you to the Bucks County Triathlon Club for their generous donation of $3,500 to the Foundation! BCTC hosted a Wine Tasting Fundraiser in November, with ACF as their charity of choice. ACF Co-Founder, Linda Kuepper and Executive Director, Jacqui Makowski joined BCTC President, Anthony Accardo, and Treasurer, Michael Gimpel at the BCTC Meet and Greet Event in February to accept this generous donation.

This group worked very hard to put on a beautiful event and raise us much needed funds! Sincere thanks and heartfelt gratitude go out to the members of the Bucks County Triathlon Club, their friends and families.

Children's Fitness Begins!
February began the first of a monthly fitness program geared towards our little guys, ages 10 and under with autism and other special needs. Children spent the beginning of class getting acclimated to new sounds and surroundings, but ended with fun activities and great participation! We are happy to say that this program will continue once a month for the current schedule, and hope to build this into something great and beneficial for our kids. For more information or to register, please look out for our registration emails, and our website Events Calendar!
